English | November 8th, 2019 | ISBN: 1785006452 | 176 pages | EPUB | 201.43 MB
High Tech - sometimes known as Structural Expression - is a style of Modern architecture that produced some of the most prominent and visually exciting buildings of the twentieth century. The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation headquarters in Hong Kong, the Lloyd's of London headquarters in London, UK, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France. Extensively illustrated with photographs and diagrams, and accessibly written, High Tech Architecture - A style reconsidered discusses the intended meanings of the visual vocabulary involved in High Tech, and places the style in the broad context of other Modern architecture of the twentieth century. The book offers a balanced re-appraisal of the extravagant claims that have been made for High Tech, by its progenitors and architectural critics, as an architecture appropriate for the built environment of the future.

This second edition is fully revised and updated and includes new chapters on sustainability, history and archaeology, designing through drawing and drawing in architectural practice. The book introduces design and graphic techniques aimed to help designers increase their understanding of buildings and places through drawing. For many, the camera has replaced the sketchbook, but here the author argues that freehand drawing as a means of analyzing and understanding buildings develops visual sensitivity and awareness of design.

Drawing is an important means to analyse information and develop rigorous arguments both conceptually and visually. Going beyond the how-to drawing manual, this book provides an instrumental approach to drawing, especially computer-generated drawings; it outlines how drawings should be used to convey clear and analytical information in the process of design, as well as the communication and discussion of a project. In depth examples are provided how to communicate effectively. The final section demonstrates how to transform case-studies, directly connecting an analytical approach with the design process.

The act of architectural design is an application of method. Yet, method in architecture, as in all design fields, is considered to be indescribable, unexplainable, personal and intuitive. However, this is not entirely true. Revealing Architectural Design introduces the reader to architecture from the point of view of thinking processes including definitions of domains and syntax, techniques of creative and analytic thinking, and issues of relevance. Using straightforward language and examples, the book is an advanced primer connecting thinking and decision-making to constant, underlying frameworks that create the architectural design process.

Contrary to commonly held assumptions about the foundations of architecture in classical antiquity, the author contends that the theory of architecture as an art of designing and constructing buildings did not primarily originate from the Ancient Greek and Roman writings. Rather, he portrays the mega-structures quoted in the ancient manuscripts of the Holy Land, while boldly re-identifying the theory of architecture – whose origins formerly believed to be found in the philosophical and mathematical works of Euclid, Pythagoras and Vitruvius, as messianism and theology. This pocketbook is a breakthrough manual that enhances our basic understanding of the early formation of the theory of architecture at the nexus of Hebrew Scriptures.
